The highly respected musicians who make up The British Blues All-Stars, playing at the Hailsham Pavilion this month, include one of the great names of British R&B scene.

Zoot Money with his Big Roll Band has shared the stage with such luminaries as Alexis Korner, Pink Floyd, The Police, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and that Hailsham Pavilion favourite, Chris Farlowe.

Zoot is joined by Pick Withers, the original drummer for Dire Straits’s first four albums, which included Sultans Of Swing. Pick worked with Joan Baez at Prince’s Trust gig Wembley Stadium, Robert Plant, Dave Edmunds and Ian Anderson. Pick also played on the Slow Train Coming album by Bob Dylan.

Also on stage will be Blues Band stalwarts Gary Fletcher and Dave Kelly, who is regarded as one of our finest slide guitar players and is blessed with one of the best Blues voices this side of the Mississippi, and Pete Emery, who for many years performed with his legendary partner and soul mate, Dave’s much-missed sister, Jo Ann Kelly.

Their collective experience amounts to over two hundred years of playing blues and rock music and over those years they have performed with some of the greats - Howlin Wolf, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Son House, Bob Dylan, The Animals, and Nina Simone, to name just a few.

The gig is on Sunday October at 7.30pm. Seats £20.00 from 01323 841414
